Events An event is a notification from one or more monitoring tools that indicates something of interest has occurred, such as a log message, warning, or error. The manner in which events process and alerts generate are based on the following factors: Event collection configuration via MID Server, script, SNMP trap collector, and email. Event rule, alert binding, and event field mapping configuration for processing events from various sources. You can view event information in the following places: The event list view displays the entire list of events. Under Event rules, you can view a list of individual events or a group of events that are not associated with any event rule. If an event rule or event field mapping used the event or group of events to generate an alert, the event information appears in the Activity section of the alert.
